You can take this week’s quiz as a PSA. Smoking is bad for your health. Just look at this poor guy. And he’s still a young fellow! Would you give him a light?
Another double-your-fun special this week, including several entries from a certain famous film detective series. And that’s all the help you’re going to get.
See also: Quiz the fifty-seventh: Got a light? (Part one), Quiz the one hundred-and-seventh: Got a light? (Part two).
Mind if I play through?
22 The Royal Tennenbaums
32. In the Mouth of Madness
38 No Way Out
48. Young Frankenstein
49 Pulp Fiction
50 North by Northwest
Got one franchise correctly identified, but not the entry.
Also, my bad, I swapped out the original 49 because I did Pulp Fiction already in the first Got a light? quiz so it’s another movie now. This would actually give you a chance to score 51 out of 50 if you got them all, but I don’t think there’s any threat of that happening . . .
Sigh. 25 Halloween II
You’re back on par.
Laying down a marker!
#9 – Clue
#48 Young Frankenstein
I have gotten my prerequisite of 2, as which translates to my 1, as this is a double. I did recognize the Chan ones, but hadn’t a hope in eternity of recognizing which one was which movie.
Yes, the Chan ones were for all those who have been taking careful notes over the last few months. Graduate level stuff. Have to see if Fraggle’s research can get them.
Yeah, I’m about to go check out your comment section to see who else has listed what. I carefully avoid that the first time through 😀
4 is Brute Force.
6 is Witness for the Prosecution
8, I dunno but that’s Victor Jory.
43 is Laura.
49 looks like Dragonwyck but probably isn’t.
50 is–oh, wait I thought it was illegal for professionals to compete against amateurs! 😀
Yep, that’s Jory!
Dragonwyck was B&W!
We’re all amateurs here! There are no cash prizes.
Wait you mean I’ve been doing this all FOR NOTHING!?
Join the club!
Don’t you remember when it just used to be about the music, man?
1) Mommie Dearest
2) Maltese Falcon 1931
12) Wages of Fear
14) Maltese Falcon 1941
19) Modesty Blaze
29) Suicide Squad
33) Deadlier than the Male
34) Ride the Pink Horse
35) The Quiller Memorandum
40 The Thomas Crown Affair
42) Downton Abbey
44) You only Live Twice.
Damn, I messed up twice on this quiz! First I double posted a Pulp Fiction pic that I had to replace, and then I slipped in the wrong pic for #2. You’re right, that’s Maltese Falcon 1931, but that was the second pic from the last Got a Light? quiz I had put it in by mistake. I’ve substituted the proper pic in its place.
This would give you a chance to score 51/50 but . . . Modesty’s last name is Blaise not Blaze so that gets a glowering look, and that’s definitely not Downton Abbey since I haven’t seen that movie. I leave the grey pound flicks for distinguished Scottish film authorities.
Ok I’ll have another look if I get chance. 50 is too many!
Just wait until Quiz the two-hundredth! That’ll be an all-day quiz!
When will that be?
There is no film called Modesty Blaze.
Ya da ya da Alex already told me it’s Blaise.
I’m glowering at both of you! Like Maggie Smith as Slapface in The Northman!
You’ve been smoking again.
11: is that The Specialist?
3 is killing me! I’ve seen it before but can’t place it!
That is The Specialist! Sharon giving one of her cool looks.
I dunno, #3 is pretty obscure. Unless you watch a lot of the same terrible movies I do . . .
25. Halloween 2
48. Young Frankenstein
Thanks for the reminder I need to watch Young Frankenstein again. Or Spaceballs. Or something Mel Brooks, I don’t know.
or Blazing Saddles!
Yeah, I think Blazing Saddles was probably his best. I was watching a bunch of his stuff recently and it seemed to be one that held up the most anyway.
For me, it’s always a tie between Blazing Saddles and Space Balls.
Thats the one I haven’t seen to be honest, so seems like the best bet.
You can’t go wrong with it 😀
